“Oki Doki travel agency – amazing owner & service!”
We recently booked the Rainbow Mountain and Salkantay trek with Alvaro at Oki Doki Travel and we’re stoked we did!
The rainbow mountain trek was a bit all over the place in the morning & slow to get going but it seemed to be that way with many of the treks as multiple agencies pool their clients in together so I think it’s just the luck of the draw.
The Salkantay trek on the other hand was incredible! Unlike other agencies Alvaro has across the board pricing so all his customers pay the same rate, also included in the price was a good quality very warm sleeping bag, an additional mattress which made our nights a lot more comfortable and trekking poles which were extremely useful throughout the trek. Alvaro also organises to have a bag of items you don’t need for the last day to be taken back to Cusco so you don’t have to carry it the 2.5hrs to Aguas Calientes and then personally drops if off to you in your hostel the next morning to make life easy and also see how the trek was.
We met for a briefing the evening before the trek which was a great way to meet some of our group and also our guide.
Our group from Oki Doki were put with people from other agencies and we had 13 people in total. Those from the other agencies had paid $5 less than us but didn’t have the added extras such as sleeping bag, mattress etc
Our guide Ciro was fantastic, he gave us a lot of information throughout the trek, made sure we had adequate rest stops and did everything he could to help the couple of people on our trek who got sick (mainly from the altitude.)
Alvaro is such is nice guy who really cares about his clients and wants to make sure you have the best experience. I highly highly recommend booking through this agency OKIDOKI TRAVEL PERU!. Stayed November 2016, traveled as a couple.
